- The 36th Annual American National Riding Commission (ANRC) National Intercollegiate Equitation Championship is being hosted by Goucher College at McDonogh in Owings Mills, Maryland April 19-21, 2013. Approximately 15 college teams will showcase their most talented riders, who will be judged and scored in four phases: a Program Ride (including USEF hunter equitation tests); a Hunter Seat Equitation Medal Course; a Derby Style Equitation Course (over natural obstacles in a field); and a written test based on riding theory and equine science. Novice division entries will compete over fences at 2’6” and National division entries will compete over fences at 3’.
Both individuals and teams will receive honors and awards from ANRC, USHJA (United States Hunter Jumper Association) and USEF (United States Equestrian Federation). USHJA is the primary sponsor of the event and participants are eligible for USHJA Affiliate Equitation awards. This year's judges are Bill Ellis from Ocala, Florida, and Kim Dorfman from Aiken, South Carolina. The written test judge is Marion Lee from Leesburg, Virginia.
